8 Mai

Yesterday Susan and I attended the 8 Mai commemoration in Preuilly sur Claise.

It wasn't as pleasant a day as two years ago (we didn't attend last year as we were still in London), and there were less people around, mainly due to the fact it was a weekend and wet and windy.

The ceremony followed the same format as previous ceremonies, so there isn't a lot to write about really - so I will just post some pictures.

  1. Please post this each year if I may so selfishly request. It is very moving.
